#15: Darrell Rigby: How to Lead Transformation Without Chaos: Doing Agile Right

The IVY Podcast

Join us with the leader of Bain & Company’s Global Innovation Practice and renowned business researcher Darrell Rigby to learn how to do agile right and lead transformation without chaos. For decades business leaders have been painfully aware of a huge chasm: They aspire to create nimble, flexible enterprises. But their day-to-day reality is silos, sluggish processes, and stalled innovation. Today, agile is hailed as the essential bridge across this chasm, with the potential to transform a company and catapult it to the head of the pack. According to Rigby, agile teams can indeed be powerful, making people's jobs more rewarding and turbocharging innovation, but such results are possible only if the method is fully understood and implemented the right way. In a thought-provoking conversation moderated by IVY CEO and YPO Metro NY Chapter Chair Beri Meric, the myths and misconceptions that have accompanied agile's rise to prominence will be dispelled as Rigby lays out a road map for what really matters when leading the transition to a truly agile enterprise. The key focus, as Rigby argues, is balance. Every organization must optimize and tightly control some of its operations, and at the same time innovate. Agile, done well, enables vigorous innovation without sacrificing the efficiency and reliability essential to traditional operations.
